2004 Toyota Corolla Owner Comments

problem #4

Jun 112012

Corolla CE 1.8L V4

  • Automatic transmission
  • 98,000 miles


There is definitely a problem with Toyota Corolla's. My rear right door is having the issue which hundreds of corolla's owners are having. It does not lock /unlock with wireless key. I went to the dealership and they said it will cost 285 for part ( door lock actuator) + 150 dollars for labor to fix. Just for one door lock actuator. This is not acceptable. Toyota needs to recall and fix this issue. I have a friend who has two door lock with the same issue and it cost him more than USD 700 in pats & labor. Toyota has compromised on their quality and need to fix this issue.

During the snowing season I had a very heavy set coworker go with me to get something to eat, ha ha and we rushed to the car to avoid the snow and when he got in the car he slammed the door and it got caught on the seatbelt. Well damn door wouldn't unlock or lock with remote. I had to always manually unlock or lock, and still do. I fixed it once for a while but it started doing it again, now the back seat passenger door does the same thing its just a pain in the ass

First broken door lock actuator was repaired while under warranty (front passenger side), 2nd (rear right passenger side) broke a year ago, even jams sometimes while trying manually to lock, so I don't allow anyone to open that door in case!!! Then the 3rd happened this weekend. Each time you can hear a "spring" sound that's not right. My driver side door will work once in a while but then today wouldn't lock manually, I had to keep unlocking with my keyless device, then finally was able to manually lock without forcing. Am told it's $220 or so for the part, then $78/hour, could be 2 hours or so per door. Also told this is UNHEARD OF....3??? Then why tell me is it unheard of? I bet the entire batch of actuators on that model in that particular batch of cars was faulty and there have to be some others out there. Am waiting on my rear left passenger door to go! I do not like driving and not knowing if my rear doors are locking or not and having to check each time but I don't have almost $1,000 to spend on stupid door locks!
